Day 1: Sepilok Orangutan - Kinabatangan River

An Adventure Awaits: Departure and Arrival

Kickstart your unforgettable journey as you depart from your Sandakan hotel or meet at Sandakan Airport, preferably on an AK/MH flight at 0750hrs. Your day begins with a visit to the world-renowned Sepilok Orang Utan Centre, a place where you’ll witness the feeding of the iconic Orang Utan. It’s a golden opportunity to photograph these natural primates in their native habitat.

Established in 1964, the Sepilok Orang Utan Centre plays a crucial role in rehabilitating orphaned and displaced Orang Utans. These magnificent creatures, once orphaned or displaced due to logging and forest clearing, find a natural home in the mixed dipterocarp forest. Slowly but surely, they become less dependent on their twice-daily feeding of milk and bananas at the centre, eventually returning voluntarily to the wild.

The Road to Bilit: A Scenic Journey

Your adventure continues as you journey to Bilit, nestled along the picturesque Kinabatangan River, and ultimately to the Borneo Natural Sukau Bilit Resort. Upon your arrival at the resort, our welcoming team will be on hand to greet you. Refreshments will be served, setting the stage for an informative briefing. This briefing offers an overview of the resort’s routes and safety guidelines, ensuring you are well-prepared for the experiences ahead.
After settling into your room, the real adventure begins. At 1600 hours, embark on a river cruise, a thrilling quest to spot the abundant wildlife in the area. Keep your eyes peeled for proboscis monkeys, orangutans, macaques, pygmy elephants, various bird species, and other fascinating wildlife. After an exhilarating excursion, return to the resort for a well-deserved dinner. Once the meal is savored, and weather conditions permit, join our in-house naturalist for a captivating night walk in search of elusive nocturnal mammals. As the night unfolds, retreat to the Borneo Natural Sukau Bilit Resort for a peaceful overnight stay.

Day 2: Exploring Kinabatangan River, Gomantong Caves

A Symphony of Nature: Morning Along the Kinabatangan

Rise and shine to the melodious calls of gibbons and the vibrant chirping of hornbills. Your day begins with another early morning cruise along the Kinabatangan River. The serene ambiance and lush surroundings make this an ideal time for wildlife spotting. As you soak in the beauty of the riverbanks, breakfast will be served, energizing you for the day ahead.

Into the Depths of Gomantong Caves

After breakfast, it’s time to bid farewell to the resort as you set off for a unique adventure – a visit to the awe-inspiring Gomantong Caves. These caves are home to the largest limestone and bird nest caves in Sabah, harboring millions of bats and swiftlets. If your visit aligns with the season, you’ll have the privilege of witnessing the local people collect bird nests.
The journey to Gomantong Caves is a scenic drive that takes approximately two hours. Along the way, you’ll traverse rustic countryside and pass through lush oil palm plantations, offering a glimpse into the diverse landscapes of Sabah.


As your exploration concludes, you will be dropped off at your respective hotel in Sandakan or at Sandakan Airport. For those with onward flights, it is recommended to choose MH/AK flights departing at 1400hrs. This marks the end of your adventure, filled with encounters with unique wildlife and stunning natural wonders.
